questions, not clear how they figured out the correct answers or obtain the user ids and pass words to a phishing scam. apple announced the steps from happening or try to prevent it. the tech giant will alert you via e-mail or push notification whenever you try to change your account password, log into a new device or restore icloud data to a new device. prior to this, no notification when he reor it stored it to a new device. you must use a pass word, four digit code, or long access key. in response to criticism, people saying that apple is lax on security, cook's reiterating saying hey, we worked with touch id which you can find on your iphone 6. >> look, this wasn't on us. >> and i have an issue with that, nobody hacked our servers, well, fine, but somebody took advantage of the process apple
set up in order to crack those pass words. >> edge taken goes back to them saying look, we need people to be more aware. we were having a conversation about hey -- >> how unaware we are. >> it's confusing, coming from someone whose been covering far couple weeks. >> yeah. they have a decision by a federal judge in san jose. want judge thinks the tech company should pay a way bigger fine for hurting their employees. apple and three other tech companies schemed to keep their workers pay artificially low with a secret agreement not to poach each other's workers. a settlement between the workers and worked through about 4,000 bucks per employee. the judge says that's not near enough. tech companies to want go over her head to the ninth circuit. speaking of court cases, yelp won a big one, a lawsuit brought on by small businesses claiming yelp tries to strong
arm them. not only did the judge not rule in favor of the small business owners with, he said if yelp did behave that way, it wouldn't be illegal. the latest job numbers tepid, 142,000 jobs added in august. unemployment rates nationwide 6.1%. that's such a weak number. such a pride is in the face of other data showing a strong economy. i do wonder if the data is wrong. sam and laura, when you look at the numbers through the lens of education, look at that, just as teachers would say, no high school degree, 9.1% unemployed. you get a high school degree, that drops by a third, and americans with a four year college education have an unemployment rate of 3.1%. so we can talk about 6% all we want, get a college degree, 3%. >> yeah, interesting. >> great perspective, as you mentioned the job numbers, those get modified a couple of times. >> these are going to be
modified, very odd number. >> thanks so much. also a look at the forecast, especially on a friday morning. let's look live outside overlooking city the by, san francisco this morning. >> yeah, may have made it to the weekend, and it's going to be so nice, cha-ching. >> i learned my mistake from that. >> you'll try it again. 6:1 now, 63 degrees in san carlos, 63 for oakland, and if you missed what he's talking about, check out my twitter page later on, i'll be posting that action later. 59 at half-moon bay and i'm going to put it on the cloud as well. 59 in san martin and 58 to tart the -- start the day. end of the week together, and as you're heading outdoors, we are seeing our sunrise later and later, it doesn't come up now officially until 6:44 in the morning, but you can see know the beautiful purple colors coming in from that low cloud cover here in the south bay.
as we head through your afternoon, fog will clear, your inland valley spots by 10:00 a.m. you'll have to wait until about lunchtime, and then right at the immediate coast, likely staying in that fog for much of the day. that's going to keep us cool. 83 degrees for the south bay. 78 degrees on the peninsula, east bay 73, and 72 degrees in san francisco. so, the bay area weekend looks warm, but not too bad. really you can take your pick, whatever you want to do, the weather will not be bad whatsoever on the peninsula. we're talking about the low to mid-80s. not too hot, not too cold, feeling like summer time in san jose and san francisco. 70s to upper 2340u6 san francisco, fog to sun, that's the weather story. more of the same through monday and tuesday. then things start to change. you'll notice on the seven day forecast here at the bottom of your screen. a warmup coming your way, overall though, no triple digits, no 90s in the forecast for the next seven to ten days.
